Lebron James is always in the spotlight, that is just his thing. He is awesome and deserves all of the accolades coming his way this season. Lebron will be the first to tell you that the reason Cleveland has had so much success this season is because of Mo Williams. Mo Williams is such an upgrade over Eric Snow.
Mo scored almost 18 PPG, averaged just over four assists per game, shot over 90% from the line, and just does everything with so much enthusiasm. His hustle earned him a trip to this years NBA All-Star game.
To me, Mo Williams is the reason the Cavs are the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference. He and Delonte West have upped the team’s standards. Delonte and Mo can hit the outside shots when the defense collapses around Lebron in the paint. This was not there the last few seasons even though Lebron was there.
I love the way Lebron rallied to get Mo on the All-Star team, it just proves that this is a very close knit team. It was also Lebron making the statement that The Cavs are a much better team with Mo Williams on board. Mike Brown winning NBA Coach of The Year is another direct reflection on Mo. Remember Cavs fans, Eric Snow and Larry Hughes were Lebrons help in the recent past. They did not do much, especially in the playoffs.
In the playoffs, Mo is averaging 16.5 PPG and 5.5 assists / game. He will have an impact and Lebron would be the first to tell you that I am right.
